Reporter, Regulation & Compliance

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is seeking an ambitious reporter for its Wealth group, focusing on regulatory and compliance news that matters to financial advisers as well as individual investors. Over the past year, this has included in-depth coverage of the U.S. Labor Department’s new conflict-of-interest rule for retirement-account advice and its wide-ranging implications.

Our content geared to advisers is a key component of what Dow Jones delivers to financial-services firms and individual advisers via Dow Jones Newswires, the new Web-based Dow Jones News Plus and the Wealth Adviser page on WSJ.com. This includes stories about trends in the wealth-management industry, personnel moves, legal and regulatory developments and practice-management advice. We also produce a 5-day-a-week morning newsletter aggregating news of note for advisers from Dow Jones and across the Web.

Meanwhile, the group’s stories for individual investors aim to deliver “news you can use.” Our work appears regularly on the Weekend Investor page in the WSJ weekend edition and is often featured in the periodic Wealth Management, Encore (retirement) and Investing in Funds & ETFs sections produced by the Journal Reports group.

The Journal’s daily Money & Investing section and Page One are also destinations for our most significant news and analysis pieces about personal finance and the companies that handle—and sometimes mishandle—individuals’ savings.

Candidates should be able to span the full range of stories from fast/short breaking news pieces to complex analyses and features, for both a professional and individual audience. The ability to sniff out news and significant trends—as well as come up with smart ways to package more-evergreen content—is critical. So, too, is an ability to turn industry jargon into plain English and to collaborate with other reporters in our group and across the Journal.

Applications should include a resume, cover letter, and up to five published clips.
